Take a look at the photography of Karina Illovska. It’s like closing your eyes in front of a world map and pointing at random, only when you open them, you find yourself truly amongst it: “the landscape, the light, the smells” of a city far across the globe.
To me, travelling is waking up. While I’m home I’m in a routine mostly and kind of sleep walking. Travelling keeps you alert. All your senses are heightened.
I do my best to be unnoticed and just camouflage into the environment.
I was informed that children get these tattoos when they are taken from their families to work in the city so they don’t forget and can be identified to what tribe they belong to.
